"Walk without rhythm," chanted Greg, punctuating each word with a wag of his finger, "and it won't. attract. the worm." He struck a dramatic pose and chanted again, "Walk without rhythm, and it won't! Attract! The worm!" Striking a still more dramatic pose, he added, "Walk without rhythm--!"

"Why would I want to attract a worm, anyway?" said Brigid. "That's stupid."

Greg went back to his regular posture. "You'll never learn," he said.

"Feh," said Brigid. "The only reason you like that song is 'cause you think it's about Dune."

Greg shrugged. "Speaking of which, I wonder if your name is a killing word?"

The sad thing? I have never read Dune (nor seen the movie) and don't recall ever hearing the song that is mentioned here... and yet I still managed to think of it as a Dune reference somehow, before Brigid mentioned it.

Somehow I was thinking "earworm" and you don't want to attract it.
But I won't leave a link to TV Tropes for fear of the sanity of your mind.

Please, it's not about Dune, it's about the movie/television series Tremors, you walk and the vibration attracts graboids (the worm) which will then try and eat you.
